Pasadena Texas Dental Implants:
Reproducing the natural function and appearance of missing teeth was very difficult to replicate in the past. Now with dental implants this has become routine. This is because dental implants replicate teeth from the root up. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that also replace the missing tooth root. This is why dental implants are superior to other old fashioned replacement options.
A More Natural Approach
A dental implant is a small titanium cylinder that mimics the root structure of a natural tooth. A dental implant can be placed in the upper or lower jaw bone. Bone has a great affinity for titanium and will grow around and lock the titanium implant into place. The implant keeps the bone levels healthy. Furthermore, the restored implant comes out of the gum tissue just like natural teeth. The most recurring statement Dr. Nugent’s Patients say is “I can’t even tell it is an implant. The tooth feels just like my other teeth.” The dental implant is brushed and flossed just like natural teeth. No special care is needed.
Advancing Dental Solutions
Implants can be used to create dental implant dentures. This creates stable and functional dentures all while preserving bone levels. Say good-bye to old fashion crappy dentures.
Dental Implant History
Dental Implants were developed in 1952 Professor Dr. Brånemark, who had an unexpected result/accident during his bone research with rats. To his dismay, Dr. Brånemark discovered that he could not recover any of the bone-anchored titanium posts he had attached to the rats. He discovered the the bone had irreversibly bonded to the titanium. This was astonishing because it contradicted all scientific theory at the time. With further repeated results, Dr. Brånemark confirmed that bone will fuse to titanium. He called this new discovery “osseointegration”
Research continued on this amazing discovery. Now, dental implants have become the most predictable, longest lasting tooth replacement option in dentistry. There is a myriad of benefits when using dental implants.
Reasons to use dental implants:
- When replacing one or more teeth
- To provide support for a partial denture
- For support and stability of full upper or lower denture
- Increase chewing forces
- Increase self-confidence while smiling, talking and eating
- To improve your overall psychological well-being
- Enhance esthetic appearance and regain self-confidence
In 1952 the revolutionary discovery of osseointegration was discovered. Shortly thereafter dental implant were used to replace missing teeth. Sense then, research on dental implants has exploded with research around the world. Now, dental implants are the most advanced way to replace missing teeth. Implants offer the longest lasting teeth replacement options. Dental implants restore patients to optimal dental health, as well as confidence and hope to those who have suffered tooth loss.
